APPROCHE GEOHISTORIQUE DE LA LIAISON DU LAC DE BABADAG AVEC LE LAC DE RAZIM A TRAVERS L'ANALYSE DES CARTES ANCIENNES

Abstract : The geographical position of Babadag Lake, south of the Danube Delta, raises the question of its possible connection to Razim Lake. The study of this connection is based on the diachronic analysis of 38 old maps of the analyzed area from the 16th century until nowadays. In this study, maps are seen as analysis instruments that permit the observation of the evolution of landscape and the chronology of the evolution of the connection between Babadag and Razim Lakes, based on comparison of documents from different historic periods. The cartographic diachronic analysis allows the identification of the big tendencies between opening and closure: periods of Babadag Lake opening to Razim Lake and vice versa, periods of separation of the two Lakes, as well as the current situation when the connection between the two lakes is reduced to expansion of vegetation or to artificial water exchange through a watergate. This study will be followed by a sedimentary analysis based on a coring at the site in 2011.
